First Look: The QWERTY-equipped LG Cosmos 3

1:06 /

Currently available for free from Verizon, the LG Cosmos 3 sports a 1.3-megapixel camera, a 2-inch screen, and a four-row physical keyboard for messaging.

Hello, everybody. It's Lynn La from CNET. And today, we're going to check out the LG Cosmos 3 from Verizon. This device is a feature phone aimed for users looking for something simple that they can easily type out messages with. It's got a 2-inch screen with a 320x240 pixel resolution. Now, that isn't much but you can still see it's pretty colorful and bright. A few physical features include a shortcut hard key to launch the camera, two pairs of soft keys, and a four-row keyboard that includes directional buttons, and a spacebar that launches your social networks. You'll also get 32 gigs of expandable memory, Bluetooth, and a very glacial web browser experience. The device runs on a 9 ampere-hour battery which will give you a reported talk time of about 6 hours. Now, the 1.3 megapixel camera lacks both recording and flash capabilities, but you will get some features like noise reduction and color effects. Currently, the handset is going for free if you sign a two-year contract with the carrier. Again, I'm Lynn, and you've been checking out Verizon's Cosmos 3.
